  14. LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday said that the PML-N has been responsible for making the recently conducted census controversial. "The census was made controversial by the PML-N due to the manner they conducted the census in," said the PPP scion. He added that the census was conducted in a non-transpirational manner and the ruling party has not taken any steps to address the reservations raised by the political parties. "Our stance is the same as it was before the Council of Common Interests (CCI) meeting. We had asked for the rechecking of one percent blocks in the Senate from the provisional census," added Bilawal. "The rechecking has not been done yet." The PPP chairman said the reservations of the party were raised in the CCI meeting and till now the PPP is satisfied with the discussion held in the said meeting. "If they do not do it, we will again raise the issue after the elections." He added that the general elections scheduled for 2018 will not be delayed and will be held on time. The PPP chairman also spoke in regards to deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif and said if one sees Nawaz's historical past, he has been involved in every conspiracy against democracy. "Both of PPP's former prime ministers have had their names on the Exit Control List (ECL) and have faced NAB cases." PPP's chairman said that the law should be the same for everyone and there should be "no difference in the cases of PPP, PTI and PML-N". Referring to the ongoing NAB case against Sharjeel Memon, he said the way the case is being conducted is discrimination. Bilawal, condemning the recent disappearance of the deputy secretary general of the Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM), demanded the Punjab government to produce him before the court as he was picked the by province's police. PPP leader said such 'kidnappings' should not take place as no one knows the whereabouts of the missing party leader. "There should be rule of law in Punjab too." Earlier, the Sindh government had rejected the provisional results of the sixth population census by terming the results as a conspiracy against the province by the federal government. Speaking over the issue, Chief Sindh Minister Murad Ali Shah had said that it is very much clear that the people of Sindh have reservations against the census results; the statistics department should share the details of blocks with the Sindh government so that it can be counter-checked. He said that the Sindh government would like to see the next elections based on the provincial results of the census, and for it, amendments need to be done in the Constitution. The federal government had rejected the reservations raised by Sindh's political parties and said the process of conducting the census was transparent. It added that all provinces had monitoring committees which were briefed on a regular basis while the census was being conducted. The government further said that additional time was given to address all reservations and complaints. Results released for the citywide population in the provisional census conducted by the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics show that Karachi?s population has ballooned to 14.9 million people in 2017 as compared to 9.39 million in 1998. Thirty-three percent of Sindh?s 47.9 million-strong population lives in the province?s two major cities, Karachi and Hyderabad. While the provincial capital?s population grew by 59pc in nineteen years, Hyderabad?s population only grew by 0.6 million during the same time. The sixth Housing and Population Census began after a period of 19 years on March 15. The census was conducted in 16 districts of Punjab, eight districts of Sindh, 14 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 15 districts of Balochistan, five districts of Azad Jammu and Kashmir and five districts of Gilgit-Baltistan.

This is in contrast to the position his party held at the 16th meeting of the parliamentary committee on NAB laws last Wednesday, in which all parties, including the ruling party and PPP, agreed to not bring judges and generals under the ambit of the proposed National Accountability Commission (NAC), media reports stated. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, which also had vowed to bring such a bill, backtracked from its stance in the meeting. Senate Chairman Mian Raza Rabbani during a Senate session on Thursday said that there is no need to bring such a law if there was no provision of accountability of judges and generals, The News reported. If it was necessary, some amendments could be made in the existing National Accountability Ordinance, he said. Waving a copy of his PPP chairman's statement that there should be across-the-board accountability, PPP Senator Farhatullah Babar had said he was in a fix why his party had to backtrack at the eleventh hour by agreeing military and judiciary should not be made accountable. Babar literally begged the chair to give him more time as he wanted to speak his heart out after the chair asked him to conclude his speech. Talking on the way forward, he said that enforcing accountability seemed a distant goal, and in such a situation, he said there was left only one option: tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. In August, leaders of the two parties had also agreed to form a new body to replace the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), proposing that the bureau would only be able to probe federal institutions. No agreement, however, was reached on the issue.
  19. KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Monday his party will not accept a technocrat government in the country. In an interview, the PPP chairman stressed on the need for measures against corruption. "Those speaking out against corruption do not wish a resolution to this issue." He said the former prime minister has been involved in conspiracies against democracy, however, he added: "PPP will not accept a technocrat government." "PPP always paid attention to the economy and the party will perform well in the next [general] elections," Bilawal said. He also said there should be no difference in accountability, adding that if anyone within his party was found involved in irregularities, they would not support that person. The PPP chairman went on to say that Imran Khan is "playing a dangerous game." "People's Party never did hate politics; it is not in the national interest," he said, adding, "We will not tolerate any undemocratic way." Speaking about Afghanistan's situation, Bilawal said if India is investing there, then Pakistan should also do the same. He criticised the PML-N government for not appointing a foreign minister for four years.

The party?s provincial president, Humayun Khan, and senior local leadership will accompany Bilawal. All eyes on NA-4 The by-election, due on October 26, is being seen as a litmus test for the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) popularity in the province, especially with regards to the general elections next year. ECP sets October 26 for by-poll on Peshawar's NA-4 The seat fell vacant after death of PTI MNA Gulzar Khan The seat had fallen vacant when the incumbent lawmaker, PTI's Gulzar Khan, passed away on August 28 this year. Khan had become estranged with the party leadership over differences on several issues but was still a PTI member. The constituency consists of suburban areas of Peshawar, including Badabher, Chamkani, Matni, Adezai, Ahmadkhel, Bazidkhel and Koh Damaan. In the 2013 polls, the PTI candidate had secured 55,134 votes while Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) Nasir Musazi had obtained 20,412 votes. Moreover, Jamaat-e-Islami's (JI) Sabir Awan had garnered 16,493 votes while Awami National Party?s (ANP) candidate Arbab Ayub Jan had received 15,795 votes. After them, the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F) candidate, Arbab Kamal, had secured 12,519 votes followed by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) candidate, Misbahud­din, who got over 12,000 votes. At present, the PML-N has again given the ticket to last time's runner-up, Musazai, who is being supported by the JUI-F and the Qaumi Watan Party.

Moreover, the newly formed but unregistered religious-political party, Milli Muslim League (MML), is supporting independent candidate Haji Liaquat Ali Khan in the race. The MML's candidate in the NA-120 by-election in Lahore last month, who contested elections as an independent since the ECP does not recognise the party on the directions of the Interior Ministry, had gained over 5,800 votes, surpassing the PPP and JI candidates. JUI-F announces support for PML-N candidate for NA-4 by-poll The seat had fell vacant after incumbent lawmaker Gulzar Khan, from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), passed away due to a heart ailment The MML, an offshoot of the Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaatud Dawa, is yet to be recognised by the ECP on the directions of the Interior Ministry, which states that the intelligence agencies and Foreign Ministry have advised agianst the move.

  24. LAHORE: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday criticised the PTI and MQM-P over calls to change the leader of opposition in the lower house of parliament. He said such moves will pose a danger to the stability of the parliament and is not a good omen for the supremacy of the lower house. The PPP chairman also commended Khurseed Shah's role for the supremacy of the parliament and added that Shah has played an important role in defending the parliament from 'attacks'. Bilawal alleged that though the PTI and MQM-P are part of the parliament, they have been damaging the house by their actions. "PTI and MQM are being run via remote control," said Bilawal and further added that the two political parties are busy conspiring against the system. Referring to the powers vested in the opposition leader in regards to the caretaker government and appointment of a NAB chairman, Bilawal said no one can take those powers away from the leader of the opposition. On Tuesday, a delegation of PTI, including Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Asad Umar, Firdous Shamim among others, met with the leaders of MQM-P. The leaders of the two parties mulled over the possibility of replacing PPP stalwart Khursheed Shah as the leader of opposition in the National Assembly, before the caretaker government steps in ahead of 2018 General Elections. After the meeting, MQM-P chief Farooq Sattar said that MQM supported the resolution proposed by the PTI, adding that the parties discussed country?s political situation. Addressing a press conference after the meeting, Shah Mehmood Qureshi remarked: "We have no personal grievances against anyone. We respect Khursheed Shah.? PTI has started making efforts to replace the opposition leader with its own senior member, Shah Mehmood Qureshi. The caretaker government is set up in consultation between the opposition and the incumbent government. PTI officials said if all the opposition parties unite against the PPP then a new opposition leader can emerge in the lower house of parliament.
